Charlie Stevens Accident Update – Eighteen-year-old Charlie Stevens, the son of Grant Stevens, currently lies in a hospital on life support, having suffered an irreversible brain injury. The tragic incident allegedly occurred during a Schoolies festival near Victor Harbor on Friday night when Charlie was purportedly struck by a vehicle.
Law enforcement swiftly identified an 18-year-old male believed to be responsible for the incident. The vehicle found abandoned, led to the subsequent arrest of the individual. Charges laid against him include driving dangerously causing serious harm, aggravated driving without due care, and leaving the scene of a serious crash.
In a poignant moment, a high-ranking police official in South Australia struggled to contain her emotions as she disclosed that the state’s police commissioner, Grant Stevens, is by his son’s side in this difficult time. This heart-wrenching development comes on the heels of Commissioner Stevens addressing the media just a day before, following the tragic death of a South Australian police officer in a shooting incident at a rural property late on Thursday.
Deputy Commissioner Williams emphasized the profound impact that both incidents have had on South Australia Police and the broader community, underscoring the emotional toll on law enforcement personnel and society at large.
She praised police officers attending both incidents, calling them “courageous” during these “dreadful circumstances”. Malinauskas said the news of Charlie’s injuries was so “unjust” for Deputy Commissioner Williams considering the work he has done for the state.
